Those of you that read Pagan Living have already seen my Ostara ritual in the “Blessings from the Garden of __________” article but for those of you that aren’t yet followers of the magazine, here it is again! (I’m going to town today to pick up a new little pot and a packet of seeds – I’ll try to keep you all apprised of the progress. :D)
Light a white or pastel candle, in view of the rising sun, if possible.
Handwrite a blessing for growth and beginnings, placing it in the bottom of a small pot. Gently scoop soil over the blessing. Press three seeds into the soil and
sprinkle with moonwater.
Take a bite of a Hot Cross Bun and a sip of tea, alternating until gone. (For pagans, the Greek or equal-armed cross on top of the buns symbolizes the balance of night and day on Ostara.)
Blow out the candle.
